MARTHA is preparing for a San Francisco departure and the crew have all gathered for a Friday evening dinner at the Saint Francis Yacht Club. Special thanks to the Saint Francis for hosting MARTHA the week before our departure for Longbeach.

We find it an interesting fact that as MARTHA and crew prepare,  we are dockside only a few feet from where MARTHA was built in 1907 at the site of W.F. Stone Boatyard.

In addition, inside displayed at the Club are DORADE’s 2013 Transpac Trophies;  so imagine a lovely evening with a perfect view of the bay.  MARTHA’s crew enjoyed a evening of good food,  conversation and laughter warmed by the glow from the venerable Transpac Trophy and photos of the Champion DORADE.

Before we depart we want to warmly thank the various friends, old and new, who have made MARTHA’s visit a memorable one.

The San Francisco Yacht Club, Encinal Yacht Club and Saint Francis Yacht Club, who’s members, staff and Flag Officers have been warm and helpful in celebrating MARTHA’s return visit to the Bay Area.

The clock for the Transpac launch is in countdown mode,  MARTHA and crew are finishing up small projects in preparation for delivery to Long Beach and we will sail out of the Golden Gate on Saturday with a Monday, July 13th start.
